Sue has been a professional songwriter since the age of 20, when she had the opportunity to write songs for the TV cartoon series Josie and the Pussycats. She co-wrote most of the songs with producer Danny Janssen, did all the vocal arrangements and also sang with the three 'pussycats' on their studio recordings. She also worked with producer Michael Stewart on Billy Joel's "Piano Man" album, singing back-up with him both live and in the studio.
She was nominated for an Emmy for the song, "I Still Believe in Me," one of 42 feature performances she wrote or co-wrote for the TV series FAME. She has had recordings in every genre from pop R&B (including top 40 hit and multi-platinum single by Five Star, "Can't Wait Another Minute"), country (including gold records by Dolly Parton and Lynn Anderson), pop-rock with songs like "You Could Have Been the One," a gold single for the group America, as well as latin-inspired pop by Cuban artist Martika ("Like Water" which was on the platinum album 'Martika' and was co-written with Larry Treadwell). She had the pleasure of co-writing the title song to Barbra Streisand's "Wet" album with Ms. Babs herself, along with producer David Wolfert.
Sue has written special material all her life, beginning with gifts for friends when she was 12 and more serious songs (for boys, of course) when she was 16. Her music was brought to the attention of Capitol Records, who offered her a recording contract and a one-way ticket to L.A. "I was brought up on jazz and musical theater - in my house it was always Charlie Parker, Dave Brubeck or the soundtrack to Gypsy or West Side Story. This gave me a love of special material that carried me on to the work I've done for television and films, and now to ShareWell Custom Songs!"
